Chapter 2: 3 Key Benefits of Customer Reviews (and Why an Integrated Platform Matters)

  • Your customers or potential customers can easily choose to work with and buy from your competitors
  • New strategies to differentiate yourself from your competitors are a must given that consumers have so many choices other than you
